Shownotes

I thought it was about time to go and see how we can hack our diet to reduce our risks of cancer recurring - if there is even such a thing? And to bust some myths along the way.

There is a lot of confusion about red meats still. Reduce it they say? By how much exactly?

Soy?

Sugar?

Will anything I eat actually make a difference to my overall risk of cancer recurring?

Krystle Zuniga is a US-based registered and licensed dietitian and a board-certified specialist in oncology nutrition. She is incredibly good at telling us exactly what the evidence says and where there is a lack of it. 

This is a powerful conversation for sure - giving us more agency in times of uncertainty.

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
